Despite the fact that Iowa has burned me on multiple occasions this season, I’m not going to keep that from passing up value when I see it. The Hawkeyes haven’t played up to their potential in Big Ten play, where they have started out 0-5. However, the schedule hasn’t exactly been easy. The one game they should have won was at home against Penn State, which they lost 73-77. The other four were road games against Indiana and Maryland and home losses to two of the best teams in the league in Ohio State and Michigan. This is put up or shut up for a Iowa team that a lot of people had pegged to finish in the top half. Illinois is a team that they can definitely get right against. The Fighting Illini are also winless in Big Ten play at 0-4. I think worse case here this game goes down to the wire with Iowa losing by just a few points, though I really like their chances of pulling off the upset and winning outright. Give me the Hawkeyes +5!

Free Pick – Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach CFB Game #238 Wednesday Iowa Hawkeyes (-) vs Boston College Eagles in Pinstripe Bowl @ Yankee Stadium in Bronx, New York @ 5:15 ET – The Eagles covered their final 9 games of the season and, that said, the last thing they needed was time off. That will most certainly break the momentum that this Boston College team had and that includes at the betting window. I know the location of this game favors the Eagles over the Hawkeyes but this Big Ten team is going to come ready to play. Remember that this is a big game for Iowa as their recent bowl history hasn’t been good. That said, remember what the Hawkeyes did in their biggest regular season game this year.

They blasted Ohio State and put up 55 points on them. Iowa also closed the season strong with a big win over Nebraska where they put up 52 points on the Cornhuskers. That said, I like the value here with the Hawkeyes and the current spread (2.5) is low enough that the money line (135) is actually the way I am recommending here if you have access to it. Great value on the Hawkeyes to get their first bowl win since 2010. Keep in mind their last 5 bowl opponents were Oklahoma, LSU, Tennessee, Stanford, and Florida. They’ll take advantage of taking a step down in level of competition for this one! Free Pick IOWA
